A very original, entertaining book. A quick read, but one which will make you look at the world in a whole new way. There are ten simple techniques, each accompanied by examples of how to think in creative ways. This is a great book not only for writers and other artists, but business people, those who enjoy puzzles, and basically anyone looking to solve a problem or do or see something in a new and different way.
And if you enjoy this title, you will definitely also like the sequel "A Kick in the Seat of the Pants"
